Believe it or not, there’ll soon be young football players running, passing, blocking and tackling here is Sault Ste Marie.
Now with all the snow melted and the flowers starting to bloom, the 2017 football season is about to begin on May 20th with the Ontario Football Conference Junior Varsity Sault Sabercats to take to Superior Heights artificial turf for an exhibition match – up against the Thunder Bay Knights of the Thunder Bay Minor Football Association.
Both the junior and varsity Sabercats have been practicing for the last couple of weeks to prepare for this upcoming season with joining the OFC during the off- season. The junior Sabercats will head into the 2017 season with over 50 plus players on their roster while the varsity squad will field a team with just over 40 plus bodies entering their season opener on May 27th at Superior Heights.
The Sabercats will kick – off their season at 2:00 p.m on May 20th at Superior Heights.
